Apple today bumped up the speed of the Core 2 Duo processors offered in the 13.3" MacBook line, but no Santa Rosa platform upgrade as some had hoped for.
The high-end black MacBook now comes default with a 2.16GHz processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB Hard Drive, Superdrive (8x dual-layer burner) for $1,499. You can also now bump the hard drive up to 200GB for a +$100 premium over the 160GB drive. So basically now you're getting more for the same price and the ability to configure a larger 200GB hard drive. The price breakdown is as follows:
The front side bus stays at 667MHz, meaning there's no new Intel Santa Rosa platform inside. 802.11n is of course part of the mix now though. It's simply wait and see as to whether the MacBook Pro will be bumped up to Santa Rosa.
